The Card Concept - Around the World

 
  Check out the new inspiration board over on The Card Concept blog!
 The theme this week is: Around the World
Everyone is welcome to play along using the colors, the theme, 
textures, items, or just anything from the picture as your starting point.
 
 I was inspired by the old books and suitcase to create this mixed media card.

After embossing my background with the subway folder, I lightly swiped white ink across it to make the raised part stand out a little more. The suitcases were colored by lifting some ink off of my distress oxide pads with my waterbrush pen and then painting it on my image. I mixed a little brown into the colors to create different tones.

I love the stack of suitcases and the book page for the background, I bought a book at a used book sale just for that use and keep forgetting, very cool!
